West Brom have appointed Alan Pardew as the club's new manager.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at the 56-year-old's managerial record.

Reading (1999-2003)

Pardew was promoted from reserve team boss in 1999 and helped turn the Royals from relegation strugglers to promotion contenders.

A 2001 play-off defeat to Walsall was followed by promotion to the old First Division in 2002 and he guided them to fourth in 2003, losing to Wolves in the play-off semi finals.

West Ham (2003-2006)

Another play-off defeat, this time to Crystal Palace in the 2004 final, came in his first season at West Ham but they were promoted back to the Premier League via the play-offs in 2005.

The Hammers finished ninth in 2006 and lost the FA Cup final on penalties to Liverpool after a 3-3 draw but he was sacked in December 2006 with the club 18th.

Charlton (2006-2008)

Out of work for just two weeks Pardew joined Charlton but he could not save the Addicks from the drop and suffered the first relegation of his career in 2007.

He failed to spearhead a return to the Premier League, finishing 11th in the Championship in 2008, and was sacked with he club in the bottom three in November 2008.

Southampton (2009-10)

Pardew took over a Southampton side in League One and suffering a 10 point deduction but still kept alive a play-off challenge until late in the season.

The Saints won the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in 2010, the club's first trophy since 1976, but Pardew was sacked in August 2010 following "a review of the current status in and around the first team."

Newcastle (2010-14)

After Chris Hughton was fired by Newcastle, Pardew was appointed on a five-year contract and secured 12th spot in the Premier League in 2011 and a year later won the Premier League and LMA Manager of the Season awards after Newcastle came fifth.

In 2013 Newcastle lost to Benfica in the Europa League quarter-finals but Pardew came under increasing pressure after dismal form in 2013-14 - during which he was sent to the stands after headbutting Hull's David Meyler - before Palace came calling.

Crystal Palace (2015-16)

The former Eagles defender was appointed in January 2015 and took Palace to their best ever Premier League finish of 10th after starting in the relegation zone.

The 2015-16 season saw an FA Cup final defeat to Manchester United and a 14th-placed finish but he was sacked in December 2016 having won just six games from 36 that year.
